Advent calendar 2106 - day 22, 23 and 24

Sorry for the delay in making the recap of the final days of our Advent Calendar activities ! You know, life happens, specially during the holidays !

So .... on Day 22, the activity was making a trivet and a keyring for each of their grandmas, with wooden beads. Easy peasy, and it was part of a package with many other goodies !

On Day 23, the activity was folding the napkins for Christmas day, in the shape of a Christmas tree. We followed this super easy tutorial found on Pinterest here. I borrowed green napkins from my mother-in-law, but they weren't cotton & didn't folded as neatly as I wanted. Yet, it was nice to do & it presented well in the plates !

And on the last day, on Day 24, the activity was baking a Victoria Sponge (or sandwich) ! It was pretty much straight forward, I wonder why I always thought it was more complicated ! We will be doing it again soon I think ! We didn't use buttercream for the filling, but I think we'll do in the future. You can find a recipe here.

I probably won't be much around here until the new year. I hope you've had a nice time visiting my blog in 2O16. I was honored by each of your comments, I appreciate them deeply.

Be well & merry & safe & happy, and see you in 2O17 !
